    -Flamingo Fab
    -Ballys Indigo
    -Harrahs Mardi Gras

    Thanks!

    No hard data, but when I sporadically look at rates...over the last year or so.

    Harrahs/Rio (pretty close)
    Bally's (sometimes very cheap on weekends)
    Flamingo...not bad, but rarely the best.

    I just looked at random dates in 16 (march/may) without being logged in...and it looks like Harrah's looks better than most.

    Rio would most likely be the cheapest yet it is not on the strip. If you have a TR card and even minimal play you can probably stay at Rio for free depending on when you want to go. Bally's would prob be the cheapest option on the strip. If you do stay at Rio, check out the sports deli its open all night and pretty good. Rio also gives you a free buffet if you earn 50 tier credits, the buffet is good but don't upgrade to the seafood side that is not worth it.

    I stayed a Bally's once for a few nights but not in the Indigo tower, so i can't help you out with that one. I did think the Jubilee rooms were very nice.

    It's going to be dependent on dates. But in general, the Flamingo has moved into the lowest potential price slot followed by Harrah's, then Ballys, then Rio.

    Its gonna be Harrahs and then Ballys. At least by the CET group rates for convention and corporate meeting planners. So at least according to CET marketing tha'ts how they stack rank them by property if you
    are a corporate meeting planner.

    CET markets rates starting at $31 a night at Harrahs and $35 a night at Ballys. https://www.caesars.com/?originalrequest=%2Fgroups_mtgs%2Findex

    I just booked my trip last week and I am a low roller. Fab room 1 king non smoking was the cheapest followed by Rio and then Harrah's.

    I ended up taking the Flamingo Studio 1 king bed non smoking as it was a few bucks cheaper than Harrah's Mardi Gras 1 king non smoking. I have never stayed in Flamingo but have stayed at Harrah's 3 times so for me new hotel to stay in but still mid strip and a bigger room/suite for a few bucks less was good by me.

    It depends.

    But generally I would say Rio.

    Those 4 rooms all seem very close to me in regular price. Flamingo seems to be a bit more in summer, and suddenly compete for the lowest over the winter. And it fluctuates due to booking volume, what reno's are done, and other factors.

    If you use the all vegas calendar to price out your rooms it does not matter. You can always find the cheapest for your dates.

    Yep. All the past "stories" and "opinions" do not matter. The online rate chart will show the cheapest rooms for your date. And, as always, they change based on events, days of week, demand, etc.

    Are rooms at The Linq more expensive than rooms at Harrah's or Flamingo? If so, are they worth it?

    Again, it depends on the date. The prices are generally comparable, but Linq is often a few bucks more.

    I have not stayed at Linq yet (under that name and reno), but my experience with lower end CET rooms is that they are more or less interchangeable. A little more or less space here or there, but no great difference. It essentially becomes brand preference.

    The one thing to say for the Linq is that their room fixtures will be fairly new. Often, the last redecoration rises to the top of the low roller hotel heap.

    I'll be at the Linq for a fourth straight time in a few weeks (SO SOON). They are more expensive but only slightly. I've been told by hosts and by others that the only reason the prices are around the same as Harrahs/Flamingo is because they are still trying to get people to try it out after years of the Imperial Palace being a dump. I've been told rates will increase over the next year or two as that reputation goes away.

    If you're booking the cheapest room possible, aka just the standard 1 king / 2 queen room, the Linq rooms are smaller than what you would get at Harrahs or Flamingo. However, they're much cleaner and more modern. I find the standard rooms at Harrahs/Flamingo to be fairly old looking and are about what I'd expect from a Howard Johnson, Best Western, etc. The Linq rooms make me feel like I'm in a cool Vegas hotel. Casino-wise, all three are a 2-3 minute walk from each other so I love staying at The Linq and playing all around, with Cromwell (2 doors down) and Caesars (across the street) included.

    I've never stayed in the "standard" Linq room but I've had friends that have and I've seen them in person. I always got the "luxury" version (when I wasn't staying in a suite), which is basically just a bigger bathroom and a small sitting area with a second tv. The price for these is only a little more usually and I wouldn't be surprised if the $20 trick at the front desk would get you from standard to one of those. If you're worried about smaller rooms, then I'd definitely look into that. If you only plan on sleeping in your room and you're not worried about size, then the Linq is easily the top choice. It would be for me regardless

    I can't speak for the other hotels, but the Indigo rooms at Ballys are a little dated, but very serviceable. Also, depending on time and occupancy, just ask politely and you may get a complementary upgrade to a Jubilee room.

    I just want the cheapest against my back-end comps..for my wife and I, a room is just that..somewhere to sleep, shower and store out clothes.
    I'd rather spend the money on food & beverage, than room.
    Sounds like Harrahs Mardi Gras may be in store.

    Again, you can see all the rates right on the website.

    Are they better - I am guessing some rooms at each place are better than some rooms at other places. Which rooms types are you comparing, and what is the price difference?

    When you entered your dates, which one came out cheapest?
